Limoneira Company Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Strategic Decision to Expand One World of Citrus and to Explore Sale of Certain Assets for “Asset Lighter” Business Model

4% Revenue Growth in the Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Compared to PY, Driven by Increased Avocado and Orange Revenues

Strong Avocado Profitability for First Six Months of Fiscal 2022; Expect Higher Pricing to Continue Driving Avocado Profitability for Third Quarter of FY 2022

Announced Fallowing Program in Yuma, AZ, Resulting in More Than 1.3 Billion Gallons of Water Saved and a $1.0 Million Increase in Operating Results Over Last Year

SANTA PAULA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 7, 2022-- Limoneira Company (the “Company” or “Limoneira”) (Nasdaq: LMNR), a diversified citrus growing, packing, selling and marketing company with related agribusiness activities and real estate development operations, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended April 30, 2022.

Management Comments

Harold Edwards, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, “We enter the second half of fiscal year 2022 with an improving topline driven by increased revenues for avocados, oranges and specialty citrus in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022. Our avocado segment has continued to outperform expectations this fiscal year with pricing over 50% higher year-over-year in the second quarter and strong demand leading us to expect continued strong profitability for the third quarter of fiscal year 2022. Lemon pricing remained challenged in the second quarter as the domestic lemon market works through a surplus of inventory; however, we were encouraged to see the lemon export market begin to slowly return to normal. The topline improvement in the second quarter was partially offset by the cost side of our business, as our industry continues to face rising labor costs and higher packing and supplier costs.”

Mr. Edwards continued, “In order to unlock the value of our many assets and better leverage our leading global citrus position, our Board of Directors has formulated a strategic plan to expand One World of Citrus, increase our avocado plantings and sell certain assets to dramatically increase our cash flow in the near future. We expect to increase our One World of Citrus business by focusing on growth of “asset lighter” sales using more GROWER PARTNER fruit in order to reduce the impact of pricing volatility and farming costs. We will continue to develop “best in class” grower services to recruit additional grower partners. We have over 15,400 acres of rich agricultural lands, real estate properties, and water rights in California, Arizona, Chile and Argentina with a fair-market-value of over $600 million in today’s market yet a book value on Limoneira’s balance sheet of $220 million because many of these assets were acquired years ago at a low-cost basis. Selective monetization of certain assets in Limoneira’s portfolio creates a tremendous value creation opportunity for our shareholders.”

"A recent example of our efforts to streamline our operations and become a more efficient organization is the recently announced fallowing program with the Yuma Mesa Irrigation and Drainage District at our Associated Citrus Packers ranch. At Limoneira, we have long been an advocate of prudent and efficient water management and continue to be a leader in conservation and preservation efforts within the greater Western United States. With this agreement we will not only help to further our sustainability initiatives through efforts to minimize fresh-water shortages to residents in Arizona and the Lower Colorado River Basin, but also create value within our existing asset base. This program will save more than 1.3 billion gallons of water annually and increase operating results by over $1.0 million over last year for our Company. We continue to evaluate all potential options for our assets with the goal of further deleveraging the Company’s balance sheet and unlocking significant value for our shareholders.”

Fiscal Year 2022 Second Quarter Results

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, total net revenue was $46.8 million, compared to total net revenue of $45.1 million in the second quarter of the previous fiscal year. Agribusiness revenue was $45.4 million, compared to $44.0 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Other operations revenue was $1.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, compared to $1.1 million in the second quarter of the previous fiscal year.

Agribusiness revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 includes $27.3 million in fresh lemon sales, compared to $28.7 million of fresh lemon sales during the same period of fiscal year 2021. Approximately 1,552,000 cartons of U.S. packed fresh lemons were sold in aggregate during the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 at a $17.57 average price per carton compared to approximately 1,528,000 cartons sold at an $18.79 average price per carton during the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. Lemon revenues in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 and 2021 included brokered fruit and other lemon sales of $2.7 million and $2.3 million, respectively. Brokered fruit revenue is primarily comprised of packed fruit for resale where the Company is the principal in the transaction.

The Company recognized $3.6 million of avocado revenue in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, compared to $2.7 million of avocado revenue in the same period last fiscal year. Approximately 1.9 million pounds of avocados were sold in aggregate during the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 at a $1.90 average price per pound, compared to approximately 2.1 million pounds sold at a $1.26 average price per pound during the second quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Total costs and expenses for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 were $44.2 million, compared to $42.7 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in packing costs and growing costs.

Net income attributable to common stock for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 was $1.4 million, compared to net income of $1.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021.

For the first six months of fiscal year 2022, adjusted net loss attributable to common stock was $4.5 million compared to adjusted net loss attributable to common stock of $2.6 million for the same period in fiscal year 2021. In the first six months of fiscal year 2022, adjusted net loss per diluted share was $0.26 compared to adjusted net loss per diluted share of $0.15 for the same period in fiscal year 2021, based on approximately 17.5 million and 17.4 million, respectively, weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.

Long-term debt as of April 30, 2022, was $135.6 million, compared to $130.4 million at the end of fiscal year 2021.

Real Estate Development and Property Sales

The Company’s joint venture with The Lewis Group of Companies (“Lewis”) for the residential development of its East Area I real estate development project, named Harvest at Limoneira, is currently expected to have approximately 1,500 total residential units built and sold over the life of the project. At the end of fiscal year 2021, the joint venture had closed the sales of lots representing 586 residential units, thus concluding lot sales in Phase 1 of the development. We are currently in negotiations on Phase 2 which represents 554 residential units.

In March 2022, the joint venture with Lewis signed a letter of intent to purchase 17 acres from Limoneira to potentially develop an additional 200 residential units. We expect to receive approximately $8.0 million by the end of fiscal year 2022 from this new transaction with the joint venture.

In July 2021, the Company entered into a non-binding letter of intent to sell approximately 25 acres of its East Area II property in five staged purchases to an investment company for the purpose of constructing a medical campus consisting of medical office buildings and an acute care hospital. Completion of the transaction is subject to the execution of a purchase and sale agreement and resolution of certain contingencies.

In the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, the Company entered into an agreement to sell its Sevilla property for $2.7 million, which is expected to close in fiscal year 2022. After transaction and other costs, the Company expects to receive proceeds of approximately $2.6 million and recognize an immaterial gain upon closing. As of April 30, 2022, the $2.5 million carrying value of the property was classified as held for sale and included in prepaid expenses and other current assets.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse impact on the industries and markets in which the Company conducts business. In particular, the United States lemon market saw a significant decline in volume, with lemon demand falling since March 2020, resulting in a significant market oversupply. The export market for fresh produce also significantly declined due to the COVID-19 pandemic impacts. As of April 30, 2022, the demand within both markets is recovering but has not yet returned to pre-pandemic levels.

The decline in demand for Limoneira’s products beginning the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, which the Company believes was due to the COVID-19 pandemic, negatively impacted sales and profitability for the last three quarters of fiscal year 2020, all of fiscal year 2021, and the first six months of fiscal year 2022. While the duration of these trends and the magnitude of such impacts cannot be precisely estimated at this time, as they are influenced by a number of factors outside management’s control, the Company expects improvement in fiscal year 2022 compared to fiscal year 2021.

Limoneira is continuing to closely monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and is taking actions to ensure its ability to safeguard the health of its employees, maintain the ability to serve customers and manage its financial performance and liquidity.

Guidance

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the Company’s food service business and industry logistics on a global basis. The Company expects it will experience improving results in fiscal year 2022 compared to fiscal year 2021 due to its stronger position in retail food and club grocery and growing brokered fruit revenues. The resurgence of COVID-19 during the first half of this year pressured lemon prices. As food service and export markets recover, the Company expects lemon prices to increase in the second half of fiscal year 2022 compared to the prior year period.

The Company continues to expect fresh lemon volumes to be in the range of 4.5 million to 5.0 million cartons for fiscal year 2022. The Company expects avocado volumes to be in the range of 6.0 million to 7.0 million pounds for fiscal year 2022 and strong profitability for the third quarter of fiscal year 2022.

The Company expects cash distributions to be $95 million from Harvest at Limoneira during the next five fiscal years, beginning in fiscal year 2022.

The Company has an additional 1,000 acres of non-bearing lemons estimated to become full bearing over the next four years, which will enable the Company to achieve strong organic growth for many years to come. The Company expects 200 of the 1,000 acres to become full bearing in fiscal year 2022. The Company anticipates this additional acreage will increase its domestic supply of Limoneira-owned lemons from its 2021 level by approximately 50%, or by about 900 thousand to 1.3 million additional fresh cartons, as the non-bearing and planned acreage becomes productive. The Company also expects to have a steady increase in third-party grower fruit. The foregoing describes organic growth and does not include potential acquisition opportunities for the Company in its highly fragmented industry.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Due to significant depreciable assets associated with the nature of our operations and interest costs associated with our capital structure, management believes that earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and adjusted EBITDA, which excludes named executive officer severance and loss (gain) on disposal of assets, are important measures to evaluate our results of operations between periods on a more comparable basis. In addition, we have presented adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Limoneira Company and adjusted net income (loss) per common share attributable to Limoneira Company to reflect the exclusion of named executive officer severance and loss (gain) on disposal of assets. Such measurements are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be construed as an alternative to reported results determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP information provided is unique to the Company and may not be consistent with methodologies used by other companies. The Company has not provided a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP measures, primarily due to variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections, as not all of the information necessary for a quantitative reconciliation is available to the Company without unreasonable efforts.

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are summarized and reconciled to net income (loss) attributable to Limoneira Company, which management considers to be the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP as follows (in thousands):
